Nations divided. Maniacal leaders. Chaos abounds. The night is dark and full of terrors. But first, The Beat is bright and full of news!

In a rare statement, the Secret Service stated that the younger Trump was not under Secret Service protection at the time of the meeting with the Russian lawyer, which included Trump's son and two senior campaign officials. Hence, they would not have vetted any meeting. In other news, Ann Coulter freaked out on social media because Delta Airlines moved her from comfort to a regular seat. She actually tweeted a picture of who got her seat, and Delta clapped back on Twitterprompting what can only be described as a miracle: people defending and pledging allegiance to an airline!
